 I've been following this thread with interest and have one question. Does
the new specimen or specimens of _Mamenchisaurus_ concur with the older
material that Dinogeorge has been talking about? I'm referring here to the
_Nova_ program and the Discovery Channel's _Hunting the Dragon_. If I
remember correctly (a big "if"), in the latter film Dale Russell came out
pretty strongly for a horizontal neck. Has this new material been prepared
and/or published?
